U9 General information
The U9 division teams have shared ice practices on weeknights and have games on the weekend.
Weeknight practices are spread across Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays, depending on the team you may be on. The earliest a practice would be is 4:00pm and the latest a practice would end is 6:15pm. All practices are 1 hour long.
For the month of October all teams will practice on the weekend as well as the weeknights. No games will be played.
In the past on weekends, during a time slot 2 teams will play a game and a 3rd team will practice. This will allow teams more ice for development. A schedule is created for game play and practice and teams are rotated through the ice times from week to week. We hope to continue this routine again this season.
Weekend ice times are all at Nicolas Sheran arena.
Saturday and Sunday ice times are:
8:00am - 9:00am
10:15am - 11:15am
Here is an example of a weekend.

Team selection is similar to what you experienced in U7.
A mass practice is held and coaches create teams based on similar player ability to achieve fairly equal teams.
